UCB, one of the largest Christian media organisations in the UK, has a vision for changing lives for good through the power of God’s Word. Our mission is to offer every person, in every place, every moment of the day, the opportunity to hear, watch or read the word of God in a relevant and engaging way. We do this through various platforms, including national Christian radio on DAB (UCB 1 and UCB 2), UCB TV, our daily Bible devotional the UCB Word For Today, Christian resources and life-changing support, such as Prayerline.
PART-TIME RADIO PRESENTER (inc. Weekend Breakfast Shows)
Are you an experienced radio presenter who, as a Christian, would be the right person to present live Weekend Breakfast Shows on UCB 1 between 6am and 10am every Saturday and Sunday?
Your passion will be to create unmissable radio – every time.
You will be using the Zetta playout system. You will be familiar with contemporary Christian music. You will love the Bible and how it applies to everyday life and be an active member of your local church.
You need to know that UCB isn’t looking for presenters with big egos but those who let their personal faith shine through in everything they say and do. You will work to high standards. You will carefully prepare your radio shows, being sensitive to topical events. You will have an active interest in news and current affairs. You will be capable of effectively interviewing a variety of guests. You will have the creativity to introduce original content. You will be a team player who can also be trusted to work alone. And you won’t take yourself too seriously.
UCB will be appointing a new, part-time radio presenter to join the fantastic team who keep the nation entertained and encouraged. As well as presenting the Saturday and Sunday Breakfast shows on UCB 1, you would also pre-record at least one other weekly programme and be willing and able to work on other programmes, as required.
So, as well as being a skilled radio presenter, you also need to have a natural on-air personality, a good sense of humour, an interest in the real world and a genuine passion to see lives changed by the power of God’s word.
